Just finished the last sip of this yumminess and had to share! It's so easy to diy. Things like this need to be fast, simple and easy in order for me to actually make them myself when the mood strikes, and this one is super easy!! I omitted all "milk" ingredients and just used ✔️1/2 an Avocado, ✔️1 Banana, ✔️3/4 cup frozen organic Raspberries, ✔️1 cup ice and ✔️1/2 cup water. Technically I guess this is more of a slush. I also didn't add any sweetener of any kind so the first sip seemed like it missed a bit of sweetness and creaminess because if the lack of milk but the avocado and banana def. provided some of that thickness needed. After a few sips I really liked the lightness and freshness of this drink!!! Will absolutely repeat and try adding some matcha next time!!! Yielded 2 cups

I reformulated these lip balms until I myself became addicted to them!! Prepare for your lips to fall in love! These vegan IHN Lip Balms are fun, cute and sweet looking! The best part? They're all natural, vegan and provide intense lip hydration while also packing a swift refreshing punch with it's frosty tingle factor thanks to the organic peppermint oil (with the exception of the Lavender balm). IHN balms feature a blend of rich butters and oils. You can find them here!

Some good coffee in moderation can be a wonderful thing!!! I personally started drinking one cup a day about 1 1/2 years ago when my daughter was born, and have kept the ritual going. I rarely surpass the 1 cup since I tend to get a bit gittery if I do, but if you love coffee, you'll be happy to know that it can be used in other useful ways!!
I primarily made this oil to use in an eye cream formulation as well as a test firming whipped body butter. The cafeine in the coffee is said to reduce puffiness of the under eye area as it is known for increasing blood circulation to give the skin a more rejuvenated and refresehd/awake look. Caffeine in skin products is also said to help in tightening and firming the skin as well as help with cellulite! So I decided to give it a try.

I'm eating a piece as we speak lol This gluten free banana bread recipe is friggin' delicious so I decided to share it here since I felt it was wrong to keep it to myself, I even gave a little sliver to the kiddo and she was obsessed with it...
